EXCLUSIVE: Stream Washed Out’s New Album ‘Paracosm’ In Full

Written by James Arnold-Garvey on August 6, 2013

Dream popper Washed Out‘s second album Paracosm is due for release this Friday, 9th August, but you won’t have to wait that long to listen to the album – Music Feeds is streaming the entire thing right here until the album drops at the end of the week!

Paracosm follows on from Washed Out’s first record, Within and Without, as another chillwave dreamscape shrouded in a misty pop veil. In fact, the title refers to the result of a phenomenon where people create highly detailed fantasy worlds inside their minds, often as a means of escape from reality.

As Washed Out, musician Ernest Greene is also expanding his sonic palette with Paracosm, employing more than 50 instruments to build a textured, detailed sound which focuses on melding organic and synthetic elements into one cohesive experience. That said, the record still maintains the subtle earworms and chillwave vibe of his earlier work.

Paracosm has already been highly praised throughout the world, garnering positive responses from the likes of Pitchfork and The Guardian, who called it “a sure triumph; a record which maintains a light and accessible pop veneer while staying firmly true to Greene’s own vision”.

Listen to the record in full below, and don’t forget to pre-order your copy of Paracosm online to get yourself a bonus track, as well as first single It All Feels Right straightaway!
